‘Fox & Friends’ pays tribute to Elisabeth Hasselbeck in emotional farewell

Tuesday was Elisabeth Hasselbeck’s last day as a “Fox & Friends” co-host, and most of the show became a tribute to her with short news segments sandwiched in between.

It was almost a month ago that Hasselbeck held back tears as she told her co-hosts about her decision to leave in order to spend more time with her family.

Fox News announced that she’d be joining the “Fox & Friends” team in July of 2013 after a decade as the only conservative on the set of ABC’s “The View.”

Hasselbeck paid special tribute to Fox News Chairman and CEO Roger Ailes for the guidance he’d given her.

“He gave me two gifts. He gave me the opportunity to join you all in this family and two, he gave me an outstanding amount of understanding guidance when I decided to make this decision and go home,” she said.

Both her first day, in September 2013, and last day on the job included a telephone interview with Donald Trump.

“It’s a very sad day, very very sad,” Trump said. “We will miss you.”

The most memorable tribute was this video clip compiled by the show’s production staff, giving their favorite “Elisabeth” moments.

Here are some other special moments and tributes:

“I love you all dearly. Steve and Brian, thank you. Thank you so much. I’ve been so blessed by all of you,” Hasselbeck told her co-hosts Steve Doocy and Brian Kilmeade.
